Winner and Wonderland Details

First, the winner of the Stash Happy: Patchwork giveaway is –

Tabatha, is better off than I am!  I hope you enjoy the book Tabatha - Congratulations!

My Wonderland blocks are very simple!  I started with a charm pack, honey bun and jelly roll, 2 half yard cuts, and some miscellaneous scraps.  As I was sewing I added Crossweaves from a bundle I had stashed, and Kona/Bella solids that worked within the palette (which is varied!).

I started with a charm in the center, and half the blocks received a 1 1/2″ honey bun strip, and the other half a 2 1/2″ jelly roll strip.  I did two sides, then pressed and trimmed as necessary, and added the other two sides.  I then decided to add a 3″ strip from the scraps, and yardage.  I pieced the extra bits together in some spots to add character, and the four sides don’t necessarily match!  Just went with what I liked as I worked.

Finally the blocks that started with a honey bun strip, were finished with a jelly roll strip, and scraps to complete.  And vice versa, the blocks that started with a jelly roll strip, were finished with a honey bun strip, plus scraps.  The blocks measure 15 1/2″ finished in the quilt top.  And the quilt measures 93″ square.

This quilt was all about making the most of the bits of fabric that I did have!  Now I can’t wait to make hexies with the rest of it!

Any questions?  I’ll answer in the comments if you do!

Happy Quilting~

  1. Thanks for sharing what you do with a honey bun and how you built your blocks. It’s such an interesting process.

  2. Amy, this is so amazing, you are making me want to open my huge Tupperware container full of Wonderland that I’ve hoarded and swapped like crazy for to finally make something. I love what you did with it, and the solids you paired with it are absolutely perfect. :)

  3. Thank you so much Amy, I’m so excited and such a (new) fan of your work!! I did work on organizing my scraps over the weekend, I’ll have to post a photo. :D

  4. I love it, I love it, I love it!! One more to add to the list of “to do quilts”, however, it is one I’m thinking my nearly 12 year old daughter would love to try herself! Thanks for the inspiration! Maureen.

  5. Wow you have done a great job on this quilt. Love your thoughtful design, use of fabric and the creative design! Thanks for sharing. Cindy
